[audio]World Ear Project: New Year’s Eve, College Ave., Berkeley. California
How would you like to lie down in a busy street (invisibly, of course), and take it all in? That could have been this recording’s vantage point of sound.

These are the sounds I live with, I sleep by. They are the persistent aural backdrop of my home life...

Joining the piano are chimes, whistles, and various forms of percussion in what seems to be a rather freewheeling rehearsal...
